In his first major starring project since the comic book action flick
Character is based on the real experiences of screenwriter Will Reiser, who won his own fight with cancer in his mid-20s.
Reiser penned the script for the yet-to-be-titled film and Holofcener will begin shooting in January.
What do you guys think? While we love McAvoy and admit he is a super talented dramatic actor, his comedic chops have rarely been seen--and only in little known films such as Starter for 10 and Wimbledon--but we're optimistic he can bring his charm to this so-called funny cancer flick.
